Kathryn WagnerNovember 15, 1956 ~ December 8, 2017 (age 61)
Kathryn Gail Wagner, age 61, of Howard, passed away on December 8, 2017 at Genesis Hospital in Zanesville surrounded by her family. She was born November 15, 1956 to Rose Mary (Stafford) Berry of Bladensburg.
Kathy was a 1975 Graduate of East Knox High School and the Knox County Career Center. She was employed by International Paper (formerly Weyerhaeuser) in Mount Vernon for 26 years. She will be remembered by friends and family for her loving, kind heart and beautiful personality. Every person Kathy met became a friend, for she never knew a stranger. Those who knew her know how much she loved her husband, children and grandchildren. She was a mother to many with an open door and open arms. Some of the memories that will be forever missed are the smell of her cooking and laughter as we all baked cookies.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Donivan and Rose Mary Rine and Dwight Berry, her brother Raymond ‘Dale’ Berry, and many aunts and uncles.
She is survived by husband Jerry Wagner, children Ami Frost, Amber (Rich) Wise, Justin (Whitney) Frost, grandchildren, Madisyn, Jaiden and Jamison Frost, siblings Donna (Bernard) Presley and Rusty (Sheri) Rine, sister- in- law Debbie (Doug) Taylor, and brother-in-law Mike (Angie) Wagner. She is also survived by her husband’s children, Tanya (Chris) Sockman, Tammy (Mike) Lindsey, Torry Wagner, Tara (Brian) Wagner, grandchildren, Bretton, Ciera, Brittany, Briley, Kinley and great-grandchildren Jaylen and Rylen and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Friends and family may call on Friday, December 15, 2017 from 11 to 1 at Lasater Funeral Home, 11337 Upper Gilchrist Road, Mount Vernon. A short memorial service will follow calling hours and then a reception will be held from 2 to 4 in Lasater's Family Center.
